In recent years, the international community has increasingly recognised the connection between gender equality and sustainable peace and development. However, more can and must be done to ensure resources are used effectively to achieve meaningful progress towards gender equality, sustainable peace and development in fragile settings. This policy paper suggests concrete steps that donors can take to help address these findings and strengthen the quality of their support. The paper attempts to break down silos of knowledge and action: to ‘join up’ disconnected policy frameworks on gender equality and fragility, to develop integrated analytical tools that highlight the wide range of connections between these issues, and to match global commitments with country level capacity on gender relations in fragile contexts.
